Croatia are a European based International team and are rated at 4 stars on FIFA 09. Their most notable players are: Corluka, Simunic, Modric, Rakitic and Olic. They are a very good all round team with decent players in every position. Pletikosa is a decent keeper who has decent stats. The defence is pretty solid and could be one of the best on the game. The midfield has some gifted players and ones who you can rely on. With Olic and Petric upfront you have 2 decent strikers who can normally put away a chance if asked to.
